MARGINS: Greenland Margins: Glacial Ice, Ocean and Atmospheric Dynamics

Bjerknessenteret finaniserer strategiske frittstående forskningsprosjekter.


We are investigating the processes backwards in time with main focus on the Holocene, the last 12.000 years. By gaining comprehensive knowledge focused on one particular area - Southeast Greenland - we aim to able to use of these findings in other regions as well.

Project Summary

MARGINS seeks to understand how the small ice caps, mountain glaciers and outlet glaciers along the margins of Greenland interact with the atmosphere, ocean and sea ice, as they respond more quickly to climatic changes than the vast Greenland ice sheet.
